8. End of Business as Usual by Brian Solis
(Rewire the Way You Work to Succeed in the Consumer Revolution)

Today's biggest trends --the mobile web, social media, real-time-- are forcing us to rewire the way we think, act, and run our businesses. They have produced a global culture, shrinking the world one tweet at a time. These new tools have created an ever expanding "Egosystem," in which we all believe our lives deserve 24-hour broadcasts. Now, everyday people are looking to understand what is going on as a result of the social and mobile web. Educators are looking to connect with their students and business leaders are seeking to steer the company toward a new generation of customers. Are we in the age of enlightenment or are we lost in translation?
